I think that refers to the number of times you've (re)built the kernel. So a fresh install will be #0, but it looks like you've changed your configuration and rebuilt the kernel once since then.

FreeBSD seems to need far less kernel config tinkering now than it used to. I recall doing a lot of kernel builds back in the 2.2.x days just to make my hardware useable (or maybe I was dinking with it "just because"). Anyway, the # number would increment with each kernel build/install.
